It's Friday again and time for us to spill the beauty products we're thinking about, wanting, lusting over, interested to try for the week. When you read lots of beauty blogs, spend too much time shopping online or browsing in Priceline or the department store beauty counters it's pretty easy to regularly put together these lists
1 – A body brush because Katherine has made me long for the benefits of dry body brushing.
2 – The Body Shop Shea Beautifying Oil -pure beauty in a bottle (for after body brushing and showering). Made with a lightweight blend of nut oils including Community Fair Trade marula oil, it gives instant hydration and a shimmering finish. This one has a delicious nutty scent.
3 – Estee Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator. Reduces the look of dark circles and puffiness (I have a very bad habit of rubbing my eyes when I wake up in the morning
4 – Lancome's Absolue L'Extrait. The power of youthful skin is captured in a cream-elixir that delivers a new sensorial experience. Each jar contains up to 2 million Lancome rose stem cells which enhance the self-renewal potential of our skin's stem cells and subsequently a more complete regeneration is now made possible. (Sounds too good to be true – but I think I need to try this!!)
5 – Laura Mercier Eye Canvas – Eye Canvas transforms your eyelid into the perfect canvas for eye makeup application. The innovative formula acts like a foundation for your eye, neutralizing the eyelid by providing lightweight coverage – all while extending makeup wear and prevent creasing and smudging all day. (Whilst clearing out bookcases recently I came across my Laura Mercier beauty secrets book – I love her work and can't believe I've still never tried her products. Must remedy that.)
1 – Chanel nail polish in 543 Frisson because that colour is too good to not own!
2 – Benefit Watts Up Highlighter – I've never tried a highlighter before and would have to research how to use it but there's something about this particular highlighter from Benefit that makes me want it.
3 – Some sort of exfoliator for sensitive skin (if it exists) because my skin is getting sad but I can't find anything that isn't going to make it red and angry. If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations, they would be greatly appreciated!
4 – NARS Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow – these colours are out of control amazing. Anything peachy coral is in my lust book at the moment!
5 – Unicorn Farts Lipbalm from Etsy – I know, it's horrifying to even include this in a post that also features Chanel, but it's brilliant and the combination of natural beeswax, unrefined cocoa butter, unrefined shea butter, jojoba, sweet almond, and grape seed oils who wouldn't want Unicorn Farts lipbalm?
Have a great weekend and, as always, feel free to share your beauty lust list with us!
